R.I.P. James Gandolfini

James Gandolfini passed away at the very young age of 51 today. He is, of course, best known for his brilliant portrayal of Tony Soprano in the groundbreaking HBO mob series The Sopranos but he has made his name as a very reliable character actor on film as well. Since this is a film blog, I'm featuring one of those performances and if you haven't seen this particular film, I'm taking this opportunity to recommend it. It's In the Loop, a British made satirical film that's simply one of the most brilliant pieces of film writing I've ever seen at least in recent times. James Gandolfini is one of the standout performances in this huge, talented cast. Featured above.

Absolutely insane man, really good stuff. It's such a shame that he's died at such a young age, it's so obvious he was immensely talented as well, his job in the Sopranos was so amazing.
